NGC 7331

This is the NGC 7331 galaxy, and is about 50 million light years away. It is found in the Pegaso constellation and was discovered by William Herschel in 1784.

It has been considered similar to ours, the Milky Way, because of  its mass, number of stars and rhythm on stellar formation. But it has been proved that this galaxy is much more brilliant and massive than ours.

It is really possible there is life in this galaxy and in many others… or do you think we’re alone in the universe?
